1. A multilayer inductor device comprising:
a magnetic multilayer body in which a plurality of magnetic layers are laminated; and
a plurality of inductors each comprising at least two coil conductors provided on certain different layers in the plurality of magnetic layers and a via conductor that passes along a laminated direction through the coil conductors provided on the different layers, and
a common conductor electrically connects first end portions of the plurality of inductors to each other at a first side of the magnetic multilayer body along the laminated direction,
wherein the coil conductors each have a winding form,
wherein central axes of the winding form along the laminated direction of the coil conductors of the plurality of inductors substantially coincide with each other,
wherein the respective coil conductors composing the plurality of inductors are alternately and periodically arranged along the laminated direction,
wherein the coil conductors composing each of the plurality of inductors are alternately arranged so as to sandwich the coil conductors composing a different inductor there between,
wherein the multilayer inductor device includes an external connection terminal coupled to at least two individual second end portions of the plurality of inductors, the second end portions being on a second side of the multilayer inductor device opposite to the first side of the magnetic multilayer body where the first end portions of the plurality of inductors are coupled to the common conductor and a common external connection terminal coupled to the common conductor, the external connection terminals and the common external connection terminal being provided on a layer opposite to the first side along the laminated direction of the magnetic multilayer body, and
wherein the common conductor and the common external connection terminal are directly connected to each other by a via conductor provided at positions substantially coinciding with the central axes of the winding form.
